Report: Manufacturing partner starts shipping HomePods to Apple

Manufacturing partner Inventec has begun shipping completed HomePod units to Apple, The Taipei Times reports. Sources said Inventec has sent 1 million of the devices to Apple, although one said, “revenue contribution from the product to Inventec is expected to be limited this quarter, as the initial shipment is not large.” The first million units is only a fraction of the 10–12 million expected to be built this year, with Inventec and Hon Hai splitting those orders. The HomePod was supposed to be released before Christmas, but Apple delayed it to a vague “early 2018” release, saying “we need a little more time before it’s ready for our customers.” There’s no update on when the product will actually begin making its way to consumers.
